19th Century Advice for the 21st Century Homesteader

Written by a founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties is a practical and essential guide for anyone looking to build on their homestead using skills and tools that were available to the homesteaders of days gone by. With detailed directions and handy color illustrations for constructing a wide range of shelters, including a sod house, tree house, log cabin, bark teepee, beaver-mat hut, tar paper shack, elevated shack, pole house, hunter's or fisherman's cabin, and more, this is a one-of-a-kind book that is as much a piece of history as it is a how-to manual. Shelters, Shacks, and Shanties brings readers back to their roots and celebrates the independent spirit of the American frontier-which continues to this day.

D. C. BEARD (1850-1941) was an author, illustrator, and founder of two societies for boys-the Sons of Daniel Boone in 1905 and the Boy Scouts of America in 1910. He authored and illustrated more than twenty books, including The Outdoor Handy Book.
